Giving Tuesday, a day where people around the world give to causes and organizations for a day-long celebration of gratitude.
36 Years ago, Sister Mary Franciscus opened the doors of OBT for the first time. There were no smartphones, no Craigslist or LinkedIn, and a “9-5” job was the norm. It was a different era, yet 36 years later, OBT remains focused on our Founder’s vision - connecting individuals to education, training, and jobs.
Today, we have state-of-the-art facilities across four locations in Brooklyn and Queens, and programming informed by industry partners in technology and healthcare. The path of economic mobility is not linear and it isn’t easy. OBT’s programming is designed to help people along that path - helping individuals get from where they are to where they want to go.
